This years edition of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey: Over the Top is a wacky and whimsical three-ring circus where elephants dance, Chinese acrobats fly through the air and clowns fall over each other somewhere besides Washington, D.C. This years stars include the Torres Family (motorcyclists who perform inside a huge metal globe) and the Kassaev Cossacks (trick-performing horse riders). Over the Top also features lots of audience participation and Cirque du Soleil-style aerial performers. The Greatest Show on Earth has been around since 1884. See why today at 7:30 p.m. Through July 26. Reliant Stadium, One Reliant Park. For information and a full schedule, call 800-745-3000 or visit www.ringling.com. $10 to $100.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: July 15. Continues through July 26, 2009
